eka,
I have been seeking the answer that you have provided for a looong time now. I think that Md has the same type of laws, but the District Attorneys in Md have been trying to indict people for shooting based on their interpretations of the laws. Since my LEO sister has told me the DA's interpretations (and hers), I have wondered what would happen if you were in the process of a citizen's arrest of the felon that resisted or provided a "reasonable" threat. Md has a law saying that you have the right to do a citizens arrest as well but they have been harsh to anyone who shoots an intruder in their home unless they were completly trapped and didn't have a window to escape out of.
Thank You!!!
